Assuming that the artist’s page is inaccessible because the link changed, you could try all the links of the following format.

http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/33/*

(Substitute for 33: 0, 1, 2, and so on until you exhaust the list of artists available with mp3.com.)

PS: With an advanced download manager (like cURL), you can download all the possible pages at one go. Check the ‘URL’ section at the top on the following page.

Thanks for the help! I looked at examples of other artist pages that were archived and found that the mp3 links didn't work.

I know mp3 files normally wouldn't be archived on the Wayback Machine, but Brewster's comment from the blog last year seems to imply that the mp3s are available, just not easy to browse. I was just trying to figure out if there was *any* way to get the mp3s, even if it took some effort.

Thanks!
